Fox Chase Elementary School in Philadelphia was evacuated Wednesday morning over a smell that was first thought to be coming from a propane leak.
According to school officials, the smell was thought to be coming from a propane leak from contractors working on the roof.
It's now believed the overpowering smell was from tar that was added to the school's roof.
Students were placed at St. Cecelia's School across the street.
We're getting rain well ahead of our cold front. Expect to need that umbrella on and off all day and tonight, too. A bit messy, unfortunately, for First Friday activities.
With the blast of cold air that follows, we'll probably have a dry day on Saturday, and the chance of a Sunday wintry mix into the afternoon and evening. A light coating could occur for some before a changeover to rain. Stay tuned!
